Samantha Matthews, BA
Samantha Matthews is a whimsical New Jersey artist who earned her BA in Fine Art from Gordon College. She has traveled all over the world seeking beauty and it was overseas where she discovered her passion for creative outlets. She has worked with children of all ages and backgrounds, in environments such as sleep away camps, day camps, one on one classes and group workshops. Her passion for creative outlets has most recently taken shape in the form of her mobile art studio, the 1978 VW Transporter “Flo.” Flo is the icon of Sam’s business, Art Across Borders, and carts around creation stations to festivals, private parties, and workshops at local businesses that offer projects for kids and adults. She believes that the process of art making opens up doors that can truly change artists’ lives, no matter their ages or abilities.
